Tripadvisor
"My entire family took over the John Rutledge House for my wedding. They were incredibly courteous, helpful, accommodating and service oriented. The home and amenities were top notch. We absolutely loved the staff - you can't beat the location either. We were able to walk everywhere. We will definitely be staying again."

"Absolutely amazing place to stay in Charleston. Around the corner from the best restaurants, and gorgeous rows of houses. The John Rutledge House Inn®is much more than B&B, packed with amenities and unparalleled customer service. The building and rooms are grand while still intimately historical. "

"This house has a style of its own! Beautiful iron work. The marble stairs offer a grand entrance, the green blue iron is beautiful, even the sidewalk out doors shows the significance of this family. Anytime you can stand in a place of history and think back to a time long past and be in awe of its grander. "
